After my motivation appeared to desert me this week I re-discovered my enthusiusm for landscape photography, much to my great relief.
Halfway through Lockdown 2.0 my motivation is starting to flag and I haven’t been out as much with the camera as I otherwise might. But there is always plenty of other things to get on with.
With England being placed under lockdown restrictions in an attempt to stop the spread of Covid-9 I have suddenly found myself with some time on my hands. Time that I am keen to make the most of.
We all have disappointments and opportunities in life. I am learning that I need to embrace both in order to succeed.
I am currently in the middle of the busiest period since going full-time as a landscape photographer. And not even the wet and wild Cumbrian weather is going to stop me from enjoying life to the fullest.
It has been an extremely busy week for me. But with a number of 1-2-1s, a workshop, a commission and some filming for my YouTube channel it has been a great example of just how varied life as a professional landscape photographer can be.
I knew fame would come to me eventually! This week I got to star in my very own documentary about my life as a professional landscape photographer.
I have noticed recently a decline in views on my videos. This week I have started to make some changes to they way I market my business in an effort to reduce my dependency on YouTube.
This week I return home to the area where I grew up and find myself reflecting on how different life might have been had we not moved north 10 years ago.
